Notes

    Nightwatch

      Zack joined Nightwatch in 2259, to make more money, and found himself torn between two ideologies to determine which was right.:
    1. The Earth Alliance need for tight security and authoritarian control
    2. Babylon 5's need for freedom and the ability to fight the Shadows in the Shadow War
      Zack's loyalty fell to John Sheridan and Babylon 5 when he conspired to trap all the Nightwatch members in a cargo hold, just before Babylon 5 seceded from the Earth Alliance.

    Chief of Security

      After Garibaldi resigned in 2261, Zack was promoted by Sheirdan to Chief of Security.

        "I'll probably still be here when they turn off the lights."
